Top 5 Christmas Films for Christmas Eve

Oh what a wonderful time of year, it's Christmas Eve! I feel like this year has completely flown by but I cannot wait to finish work today, get into my Christmas pyjamas, tuck into a takeaway and spend the evening watching some of my favourite Christmas films. I LOVE Christmas films and as soon as December hits I try and watch as many as I can. I thought I'd share some of my Christmas favourites which I'll be watching this evening.

London Rocks by Buckley London

It's not very often that I wear lots of jewellery and when I do, I keep it simple and minimalistic so the new London Rocks collection from Buckley London was practically made for me.

A Cosy Wynsors Christmas

Cold December evenings are all about warm pyjamas, hot chocolates and snuggling down under a blanket to watch a film. To make that a reality my TLC box arrived from Wynsors to make sure I had a real, cosy Christmassy evening.

The Best Christmas Gift Sets from Dove

Dove is one of the most trusted beauty products around and has been for more years than I've probably been alive. Their Christmas sets are some of the best on the market and are always a good choice for family members to wrap up and place under the tree.

Christmas with Birchbox

It wouldn't be a new month without my monthly box of beauty goodies from Birchbox and December's is full of Christmas cheer. December's theme is 'All that Glimmers' and comes in a super luxe clutch bag. The bag is a really good size for a night out and with three panels in pleather, green velvet and gold glitter, it's the perfect festive accessory.

Christmas Decoration Haul

Christmas is big in my house and with that comes a burning desire to buy every Christmas decoration in sight, I blame my Mother. I've been pretty good this year and haven't gone too mad mainly because the life size reindeer I want from Marks and Spencer is display only but I have managed to pull together a little haul for you guys. Including some personalised pieces, the all important spicy candles and some bunting. Aren't I good?

Soap & Glory In The Bag

It wouldn't be Christmas without copious amounts of Soap & Glory gift sets and In The Bag has to be my favourite one available as it has all of my favourite products tucked away nicely inside including one of their fabulous shower puffs.

Blogging Besties #GeorgeTakeTen

Myself and Rachel from were recently challenged by George at Asda to choose the same dress but style it our own way. I left the choice up to Rachel, as long as it was black I would be happy and she picked a good'un, the Suedette shift dress which is a bargain £16. I went with some classic black accessories (shock) and a faux fur gilet. I wanted the outfit to work for both day and night.

Bedside Table Essentials

We all have a bedside table full of tricks right? Products we need within reaching distance when we're too cosy in bed to get out and walk across the room? Well I have a little basket full of bits and pieces I may just need after I've snuggled down for the night.

Festive Styling with West Quay

West Quay shopping centre is my go to destination for all things fashion, make up and food so when an email dropped into my inbox about an evening of Wagamamas, winter styling and festive make up tips with West Quay's fabulous PR team I couldn't say no. Take a peek at how the evening went...

Afternoon Tea with Antipodes

A few weeks ago I ventured up to London to have afternoon tea with New Zealand skincare brand, Antipodes. I had heard so much about the brand especially the Manuka Honey mask so I couldn't wait to spend the afternoon with Deborah, their representative and Sophie, their incredible PR.

Nightmoth Lip Liner MAC Cosmetics

Lip liner has completely changed my make up game. I always struggled getting the perfect pout because I don't have much of a cupid's bow so lip liner is a necessity for me if I'm wearing a bold lip.

Benefit Cosmetics Agent Zero Shine

I've read a lot of mixed reviews on Agent Zero Shine, the majority being pretty bad so I'd always avoided it. I recently won a Benefit Cosmetics giveaway on Twitter to win Agent Zero Shine so as soon as it fell on my doormat I tried it out thinking I'd use it a few times then never touch it again but I was so wrong! It has stayed in my bag the last three or so weeks and when that 4 O'clock shine swings around, out it comes to do the job it's meant to.

Peeping Santa Lush Cosmetics

It's finally December so I can start talking all things Christmas! I did a Lush haul recently and picked up this little guy. I did say in my haul post that I find the name quite sinister, Lush could've of called him anything but Peeping Santa and the idea of Santa peeping takes the magic out of it a little but maybe that's just me, I don't know. 

Anyway, creepy Santa aside this is still a pretty awesome bubble bar. Containing shea butter, cocoa butter, bergamot and geranium oils, it's a fruity treat for the bath. The skin soothing butters help soften and moisturise the skin while the bergamot helps clear the mind making Peeping Santa the perfect companion after a busy day Christmas shopping. Bubble bars are some of my favourite products as they last longer than just one bath, you just break a piece off and crumble under running hot water. 

There is still a few bits I haven't tried from this year's Christmas range as my local store has had it in dribs and drabs which makes hauling really difficult! There's still a few more weeks until it all sells out though. What have your favourite bits been this year? What else should I pick up?

November 2015 in Instagram

November started with seeing Ella Eyre at O2 Guildhall in Southampton and she was incredible! I've seen her before at V Festival and would definitely see her again.
